It is presently illigal to climb on the Navajo Indian Reservation. These climbs are listed here for historical purposes only.
This climb is very close to the road, and the route faces the road. The route follows an obvious crack system on the south edge. This spire is very elegant, beautiful , and stunning. The first pitch climbs lumpy and broken rock to a ledge. Pitch 2 goes up a small splitter crack. Don't know anything about pitch 3;...looks like a very short pitch to the summit.
This route is just off the highway on the east side of the road, about 6 miles North of Window Rock , Ariz. This is the road north out of Gallup. You cannot miss it.
